I lurked for almost a year :) I was afraid I would get on some list! Now I am proud to be on those lists!!!

As a long time FReeper, my input is that it is quite recent phenomena. As I recall some leftist wrote a derogatory piece and in addition to other errors, thought Jim Robinson was Jim Thompson.

The years tend to blur but I would guess no earlier than 2010

I had actually been guilty of not closing a color and font size. It was HUGELY red for more refreshes than I embarrassingly want to remember until someone cleaned it up

And who can forget those pesky italians that didn't get closed? :=)

I didn't realize that JimRob and I had the same FR 'born-on' date. That makes it my anniversary here too and I would have completely missed it without this thread.

I lurked and then signed up with my real name. My son found me and made fun of my postings so I became Ditter 8/5/98. He found me again but so what......:D I wonder if I could find my original sign up date?

I remember a thread where someone left the blink on and it went on and on. Then we got the sandbox. What fun.

Boy how time flies. We’ve come so far since the White Water days. Who wudda thunk? Thanks Jim for holding the ship together for so long and through so much. I knew if I watched your posts you’d hold steady to what you believed...and you never let me down.

Prayers for many more good years with you at the helm.

Happy anniversary Jim, you created and built a magnificent place.

I have learned, laughed and mourned here and I'm a better person for it.

Thank you:)

Thank you Jim. I came late to the game. I was not much of a Internet person until after 9/11. I started with the AOL request for funds to the victims of 9/11. Glad to do that. Then I got on the threads from AOL and the hate I saw from posters about FR. I checked it out, lurked for quite awhile, then decided that FR was really the place I belonged.

An amazing number of people are still here after 14 years (more like 15, actually - registration was not needed originally). Some have retained the same name; some are posting under different names now. Many personal friends (although we never actually met) are listed on the Memorial Wall. A lot of history has been documented here. There’s no other place like it.

IIRC the original servers blew up and everything was lost. In some ways that might have been a good thing, LOL!

congrats, JimRob, and you should be RICH from doing this!!!

We like capitalism around here and this is one of the most important sites on the interweb

No one would begrudge you making a buck and hiring someone who is good at finding capital investors - look at the idiots at Salon.com and MoveOn.org- they get millions of $$$ from lefty communists. (odd, since it is a capitalist venture, propogandizing communism)

It would be nice if the side that likes capitalism would have similar capitalist support and funding.

A link from Drudge brought me over right about then. I registered on 12/11/1997.

We all thought then that Clinton was as low as it could go. But Barack has sure shown us!

I remember years ago, someone on another conservative site that
shall remain nameless, telling me about FreeRepublic. I have never looked back. I remember spending 9/11, numerous earthquakes, socal wildfires, and elections here with my fellow conservatives on FR. Thank you Jim Robinson for making this site possible. God bless you.
